Blanche Beatrice Cecelia Young, 47 years old and a resident of Missouri City, TX was called home by the Lord on September 21, 2020. Blanche was baptized at St. Cyril of Alexandria Catholic Church. At a young age in the 1980’s with her widowed mother and family members, she moved to Houston, Texas, then Missouri City, Texas where she attended Willowridge High School, furthered her education in business and real estate at Houston Community College and the University of Houston and received her Real Estate License.

Bea will always be remembered for her selflessness, willingness to help others, sense of humor, her joyous laughter and sparkling smile which never failed to light up a room and raise the spirits of others around her. She enjoyed contributing to and participating in family events and parties, Greek and Renaissance Festivals, baking and providing professional grade computer graphic family videos. She played classical flute, enjoyed sports, loved going fishing and playing trivia games. In addition, she volunteered for the Houston Food Bank and as a tutor for Literacy Advanced of Houston.
